    2 days ago I got an irregular brown spot on my arm, I'm a bit afraid

    Here is the thing that popped out on my arm: http://i.*****.com/wn1cy.jpg

    As you can see, I am a bit dark. Although I do tan fairly easily I've never seen anything like this pop up before. It doesn't hurt at all but I googled for a bit and I'm really hoping this isn't melanoma. If anyone knows anything about this, it would be great. I'm 19 and I have no insurance/money. Do you think it's necessary to go see a doctor?

    You say it just popped up two days ago? Time to go to the dermatologist, and get it checked out. No one can diagnose you, best to leave the to the professionals.
    I once had a solar keratosis pop up on my scalp from an hour in the sun mowing the lawn, got it checked out and removed.
